Developing Institutional Mechanisms to Deliver Action and Engage Stakeholders – Sharing Good Practices between Finland and Colombia on the Implementation of the Agenda 2030
Thursday, 14 July 2016
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM
Conference Room 7
Finland and Colombia are among the first voluntary countries to report at the HLPF 2016 on their plans,
mechanisms and measures to implement the 2030 Agenda. Both countries have some institutional mechanisms
already in place for its effective implementation, yet the universal and transformative agenda sets new challenges
for capacity building, ensuring coherence and coordination and inclusive participation leading to effective delivery
of action at all levels.
Finland and Colombia have been cooperating at the political and expert levels since 2015 in order to share good
practices and facilitate mutual learning on the national implementation of 2030 Agenda. The cooperation lead to
a joint workshop which was organized in June 2016 in Bogotá, Colombia, with a focus on building institutional
capacity, creating mechanisms to engage the private sector and the civil society, and integration of the SDGs into
the national plans and public policies.
